Setup Raspbian on a different Pi

Question:
I have a RPi2 and a RPiA+. Given the A+ only has a single USB and no ethernet, setting up a Wifi dongle had led to a dead end without a USB hub.

Is it possible to setup an SD card with the needed dongle drivers and config files on my RPi2 then just pop it into my RPiA+? Would Apt-get mess things up?

Thanks!

Is that a "yes" to both questions? :)

Any SDCard that boots OK on a RPi2B will boot OK on a RPIA+ (assuming GPU memory isn't set too high). So yes to both.
